Gloria F. Valentine, 95 years old, of West Chester, OH and formerly of Greenville, PA, passed away 12-30-17 in West Chester.

Born July 30, 1922, in Palmer, PA, to Anthony and Barbara Yapuncic. She graduated  from Farrell High School in 1941, where she was crowned Homecoming Queen in her senior year. She married Joseph Valentine, November 28, 1942.  He passed away June 18, 1993.

Gloria was a lifelong member of Croation Lodge 126, in Farrell, PA.

Affectionately known to all as, “Grammy”, Gloria deeply loved and cherished each of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and all of her extended family.  She built strong family traditions and memories through her deep faith and exquisite cooking and baking.  Whether a joyous or challenging situation, you could always rely on Grammy praying for your safety and happiness.

We all pray with you now Grammy as the angels have carried you to the kingdom of heaven so that you may reunite with your family who left this world before you.  The memory of your love, generosity, kindness and gentle spirit will remain in our hearts forever.

Gloria is survived by one daughter, Barbara Tofani, Cincinnati, OH;  two daughter in laws, Julie Valentine, Springfield, OH and Marty Juravel, Atlanta, GA.   Five grandchildren, Katy (Shawn)Turpin, Atlanta, GA; Matthew Valentine, Atlanta, GA;  Tony (Sara) Valentine, Springfield, OH;  Laura Valentine, Columbus, OH; and Joey Valentine, Cincinnati, OH.   Three great grandchildren, JP Turpin, Alexandra Turpin and Augustus Valentine.

    Barb and Joey…….I’m so very sorry for your loss.
    I had the pleasure of knowing her for many years and she was always kind and gracious, and always was trying to feed me!
    She loved life and all those around her….she leaves behind a wonderful legacy in her family. May the peace that passes all understanding surround the Valentine family during this time – and always.

    Barb and Joey-

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know your mom/Grammy has been struggling for a long time. I know she is at peace. May that same peace be with the two of you during these difficult times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Our sympathies to all your family, loved growing up on Moss Lane and all the great families. Your mom bringing out homemade chocolate chip cookies after your brother Tom threw me a pass and I tried to catch the football with my face. Your dad being tough and strict like all our dad’s, would tell you when you were wrong and then smile, at some point all the kids of my generation knew we had multiple sets of parents looking out for us and wanting us to do well. I thank God everyday for having grown up on Moss Lane.
    I loved reading your mom’s obituary as well, beautifully written, she was simply beautiful and leaves a wonderful legacy in you, Julie and Marty all the grandkids and their children.
    Wishing you God’s peace.
    Mark Horstman
